Road to Rojava
‘An American writer travels to Syria to explore the legacy of her late partner, whose philosophical ideas helped inspire a women’s revolution.
Janet Biehl was the partner and editor of the anarchist writer Murray Bookchin who died in 2006, having never seen his ideas put into practice. Murray's books remarkably crossed the world and reached the prison cell of Abdullah Ocalan, a Kurdish rebel leader.
Six years later war erupts in Syria and the rebel leader tells his Kurdish followers to create their own autonomous region, partially inspired by Bookchin's literature.’
